The Greatest Gift Ever Given


December 25, 2010

In His own time, God sent His only son Jesus to be born of an earthly mother. She was a virgin who knew not a man. Jesus would be fully God and fully man and live a sinless life. His primary purpose would be to redeem mankind by paying the price for their sins by suffering a cruel death on a cross. But the cross was not the end as Jesus gloriously rose from the dead conquering both sin and death and providing a way of salvation for all of mankind. I’m one of those who has accepted God’s free gift of salvation through His son’s sacrifice. As you visit with your family and friends on Christmas day today, will you examine your heart and see if you have truly accepted Him as your Savior? It will be the greatest gift you will ever receive. You will spend an eternity in Heaven praising the one who has given to us so freely.

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.
